Abstract [en]

Quality indicators can be very useful as a starting point for quality improvement work. However, using quality indicators for pay for performance, seems to have mainly negative consequences. In order to clarify this EQuiP updated their policy paper on quality indicators, which was recently endorsed by Wonca Europe. The positive side of indicators, using them for quality improvement, is exemplified by ”Primary Care Quality”, a Swedish system for quality improvement in primary care.

In this workshop, a brief background to EQuiP’s policy paper is presented. Thereafter ”Primary Care Quality” is introduced.

Together, the participants will discuss different use of quality indicators with focus on How the Position paper can be applied in their context How indicators for quality improvement can help quality improvement (by testing ”cases” from Swedish health care centres).

Finally, we summarize our experience of working with quality indicators and discuss what we can do to facilitate the positive use of them.
